AFORE Announces InterPort(TM) Service OAM Software for Carrier-Grade Ethernet Platforms

First OAM Software Solution to Support IEEE 802.1ag and ITU-T Y.1731 Standards

OTTAWA, March 18 / / - AFORE Solutions, Inc. a leader in the design and delivery of technology solutions for network equipment providers today announced the immediate availability of its InterPort(TM) Service OAM licensable software module. The InterPort Service OAM software solution enables suppliers of Ethernet platforms to rapidly and cost-effectively offer carrier-grade features into this growing market.

"AFORE's InterPort Service OAM software enables network equipment providers to offer advanced OAM capabilities as an integral part of their carrier-grade Ethernet solutions," said Alex Berlin, AFORE's President and CEO. "InterPort's support for both IEEE 802.1ag and ITU-T Y.1731 SOAM standards significantly improve the network's OAM capabilities and enable robust and reliable Ethernet services to be deployed."

Today's legacy networks offer a rich set of management and monitoring capabilities but cannot match the flexibility and economic benefits of Ethernet-centric architecture. And as a result, the networking industry is embracing a suite of extensions to Ethernet standards that provide the ability to manage service level agreements (SLA's) and deliver a broader span of network management and fault diagnosis options. AFORE's InterPort S-OAM software offers a platform independent solution which can be incorporated in systems ranging from Ethernet access products to Ethernet Switching systems and Wireless backhaul infrastructure equipment which utilize technologies such as WIMAX.

The new InterPort Service OAM software suite is immediately available and provides comprehensive connectivity fault management, alarm notification, trouble shooting, and performance monitoring capabilities to enable carrier- grade Ethernet services utilizing existing infrastructure platforms.
